Rounded Blue for Blogger is a modification of a WordPress theme called Rounded v2 Blue Edition, originally designed by Ghyslain Armand. WordPress version of this beautiful theme can be found at authors blog. You can also get the theme PSD graphics from his blog, and fully customize the template through your needs.

  3. Open theme.txt with a text editor (like notepad), then search for “Theme Images” and “Navigation images” (without quotes).
  4. Replace the image file names with links you have taken from your image host, and then save.
  5. Select all text from theme.txt by pressing CTRL+A, then copy by pressing CTRL+C.

Hi David,

I really like this template. However, I cannot use it in the newer XML blogger template. Can you please help so I can use this! Thanks thanks! 😀

“Note: this template is for the older “Classic Template” not the newer xml Blogger template. ”

Can’t you read? 🙄

xcelebrity on Jul 31, 2008, 12:20 pm  

Thanks for template, i had problems with installation, but 1 week ago i repeated the steps and got successful.

Fred on Aug 4, 2008, 9:26 am  

I loaded the template, and everything seems to work except the “home” and “previous” .gifs. According to the instructions, I thought I didn’t have to do anything, but I have tried everything – saved the pics myself, had them hosted, and inserted them where the instructions say to, and they still come up as an “x” meaning the picture can’t display.

Help! Any suggestions? Thanks!!!

xcelebrity on Aug 4, 2008, 9:36 am  

You can open Html code of this template and use your own pictures (but download them before it, just open sample of this template and download all pictures).

Kim on Sep 1, 2008, 2:17 am  

Ok, am I stupid or something? I have tried to download this from this site and bloggertemplates.org, and I keep on getting a really small text document that has stuff like this:

and a few more lines of that kind of thing.

Is it because I’m using a mac? I can get other templates to work, I just can’t open the text file of this one! But I really want to get it to work, it’s really cute.

under the html editing window there’s a radiobutton specfying REVERT BACK TO CLASSIC

check this button

on the next screen copy and paste the theme.txt code

Love this layout. Installation was easy. Only issue is that on really long posts, the images seem to break and I have a ton of negative space with no entry background?
Any ides on how to fix this?

Don Russell on May 28, 2009, 10:18 pm  

@ Vaibhav Singh, thanks for your comment – really helped me. I was almost tearing my hair out, with another template. I applied your advice and worked a treat, i didn’t realise you could copy template code into the Classic template section after reverting.
Many thanks

Paul Matthew Barrameda a.k.a Luis729 on Mar 16, 2010, 3:41 pm  

I get the same error… Why is it not working?

Paul Matthew Barrameda a.k.a Luis729 on Mar 16, 2010, 4:04 pm  

I HAVE IT!!!!!!
Ahhh. Much better… Okay. You have to make it to a classic template on the button on the bottom of the Layout one. Then you copy and paste it so it will be like this. Click on my name to see it!!! I might change it so you better go here FAST!!!!!

Joshua Schmidt on May 18, 2010, 11:22 pm  

I download the template but am having some errors installing it on dreamweaver.Is anybody else facing the same problem ?

vipzonet on Aug 6, 2010, 2:30 am  

Really good template, but the header-picture is too big. It might be less then 30-35% from height.

Anyway – thanks for this template.
